Okay, so you know about Battlefield: Bad Company (and the sequel scheduled for this year), Battlefield: Heroes and Battlefield 1943 . But did you know there was another entry in the series…?
According to G4TV , EA COO John Pleasants spoke about Battlefield 3 , which is currently in development at Swedish developer DICE. If you aren't familiar, DICE is also responsible for last year's excellent Mirror's Edge , and they're currently closing in on completing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 . Said Pleasants:
"I've had the luxury of looking at Battlefield 3 over at DICE in Sweden and was highly impressed by the way the team is working on that product. Of course, that's not [coming out] in the fiscal year, but that is a product that is looking very good."
This is one of those franchises that shouldn't go overlooked, despite the heavy competition it typically faces. There's little doubt that Bad Company 2 will be a definite winner – who didn't have fun with the original? Seriously? – and DICE is proving themselves to be a fully competent designer. Of course, this means we have to keep checking around for any new information that might leak out concerning Battlefield 3 , but we figure we can add another promising title to our ever-expanding radar.
